and wants you to join her. and how they use the network is the use of the connect feature to send messages. her daughter can send messages to everybody in the network letting them know how she is doing. they used to the calendar to schedule appointments and organize rides. they use the shared tasks and goals to organize larger events. for example, when joe was released from the hospital, she was unable to get back into her home because she could not get up the stairs anymore. they used the network to build her a ramp on saturday afternoon. they use files to share information about her and a place where she keeps her personal information. she has advanced directives, medical records, and so on that is not accessible to everybody in the network, but some of the members. there are stories and photos, a place where people can celebrate today, how to share memories, have the good times that were the essence in the past and in the present. you might be asking yourself this question, if you are a facebook user, how is different from facebook. it is what we called open social networking, and it is

traditional building facing the south side, i think it is phenomenal. not even talking about using three architects. i think it is a wonderful example of how to really create tively use the freeway. all of the legal foundations in place for labor, for affordable housing, etc., i am comfortable with and i greatly appreciate mr. lee being a strong supporter. in the end, i believe the position the department takes is a correct one. however, market octavia -- having said that, i am very comfortable st. exceptional designed -- seeing exceptional designs. how we measure height and how we look at hickory alley, whatever. fees are being used for infrastructure improvements, the extension and the completion is in the spirit of using the money. it would -- it is perfectly justified. it is not just a self-serving thing. together with the idea of potentially having an agreement for hickory, at an innovative way which reinforces our market octavia it is developing. i think market octavia is one of the most exciting neighborhoods that is happening and i am really happy that we are -- we continue to su
farmer's market in san francisco. thank you for joining us. tell us a little bit about the organization. >> we're 30 years old now. we started with 14 farmers, and it has grown out to over 80. >> what is the mission of the organization? >> this area has no grocery store spiller it is all mom-and- pop stores. we have this because it is needed. we knew it was needed. and the plaza needed somebody. it was empty. beautiful with city hall in the background. >> thank you for speaking with us. are you on the web? >> yes, >> check them out. thank you. >> welcome. the dish is ready. >> it looks and smells amazing. >> thank you. it was not easy to meet the $20 budget. i checked everybody out and found some great produce. really lovely seafood. i think that you are going to love it. >> do not be shy. cyou know this can run you $35 to $45 for a bowl, so it is great you did this for $20. >> this will feed four to six people. >> not if you invite me over for dinner. i am ready to dig in. >> i hope you'll love it. >> mmm. >> what do you think? >> i think i am going to need more.

trails would get money from the trail restoration projects, and that they would use the same priorities this time with the 2012 bond as they did in 2008. of course the 2008 bond was only four trails and natural areas, so that was a bit of a red flag for those of us that are concerned about the with the natural areas program has been using trial restoration money for things other than making them safer. i am very much happy to see this line which has been added. without this, we would have had the same language in 2008, and that would of been a concern to a lot of people. with the new language added, mclaren clearly needs work, in golden gate also. those are two of the major gems in the city. the forest alliance is satisfied with the additional language. we might have hoped for more, but that is the nature of it, and we are satisfied and will not in any way opposed the bond. >> i have a slide. i will to speak to it. i am arnita bowman, and i want to sit the to the supervisors released -- for listening to the concerns. the natural areas is a very controversial program. they're people bare

. >> joining us now is rob from b.g.e. with the latest on the power outages. good morning. at least check, we had 320,000 people. >> we're below 314,000 and maybe lower at this point. we've restored well over a quarter of a million customers so we're making progress but i don't think we should be feeling that great about the fact that that many has been restored and get comfortable with that because the reality is this restoration effort is going to go deep into this week but the emphasis on the word deep. >> and what people need to keep in mind is they may be seeing progress and they're seeing the numbers drop but pretty soon, it's going to be fewer and fewer people each day that get their lights back on. >> if you think about what happened during hurricane irene, in that instance, we had made significant progress by day two or three, we had restored about 70% of the customers. then we got into the individual outages and that just takes a lot of work and the problem is here, all of us did not expect this type of storm and so the utilities we would normally reach to were also affected and we
of that hearing. which will put us under general public comment. at this time, members of the public may address the commission on items except for agenda items. with respect to the agenda items, i your opportunity to address the commission will correspond with the agenda. i have one speaker card. president fong: great. i have one speaker card. linda chapman. >> at a recent hearing, i told you about the history, and i just wanted to talk a little bit more about some of those buildings we were trying to save. at the time on jones street, there was a big move to demolish rental housing to create condo's. there were lessons learned from that. 1300 sacramento and jones, which is still there, was proposed for demolition. the battle went on for seven years. at the time, it was considered sensitive. it was a curated building. it was landmarked. all the sudden, the developer decided it would be a good thing to develop a 2200 story condo. and he evicted his 22 tenants. and mentioned this before. and then, what happened? the planning commission did not like it. they turned it down unanimously. what did he
we handle drug enforcement here in california is in effect a war on crumbs instead of the often used phrase on drugs. how do you respond to his remarks? >> well, i think the first thing that we have to recognize is that the majority of people who are caught up in the criminal justice system and who are prosecuted for this type of offense for possession offenses and to some degree possession for sale offenses, the vast majority are indigent people and the vast majority of those indigent people are people of color. so what you have are two systems in place. you have a system where privileged white middle class people basically use drugs, college campuses, frat parties, not clubs, they use drug with impunity, they don't have to worry about being caught. then you have a system that comes down like a ton of bricks on indigent poor people and that's one of the reasons why i think this type of reform is a positive first step because if you aren't going to make drug possession illegal, at least make it a misdemeanor and not a felony. at least don't stigmatize and label an entire population o
talked about. it is important for us to understand what the cbos are doing. it is important for them to have specific training for their individuals. they should also have some guidelines and some criteria to evaluate their successes, on a quarterly and yearly basis. >> thank you. last question. what are the types of job opportunities that are available for at risk youth? what are the funding opportunities? >> there are not many job opportunities right now. with the way that funding is currently, it is only being reduced. what we try to do is think creative. we try to create an internship programs, where we try to confuse -- infuse youth. we utilize a lot of non-western ways of trying to have youth identified. we infuse political education so they can make a good choice. there are other programs like oasis. there are not many opportunities, not everybody could work -- all the work permits required. it also requires a social security number. alternative pathways are a good way to go, such as those internship opportunities. use these venues as an opportunity to have kids reflect and ma
to a misdemeanor conviction. so i think that's threatened us, if you're really looking for hammers and nails, why not just have a threat of a misdemeanor, period, of incarceration. the other thing i would say is that the respect trend has actually has been to implement shorter periods of flash incarceration so you actually provide an immediate sanction to address a particular problem which has had -- based on the research i've seen, greater success in changing behaviors because it's more of a cognitive behavior model and like a reward-punishment immediate system, whereas just putting people in state prison and browsing he -- warehousing them for extended periods of time where we all know going to prison doesn't mean you have access to illegal nhra catics, that doesn't seem either to necessarily be a solution. -- illegal narcotics that that doesn't seem either to be necessarily a solution. >> i promised to marty we'd be careful to give him equal time here. >> that's all right. that's all right. i already feel the glow of san francisco's progressive approach to things. and in defense
exceptions are major league baseball and my parent company, nbc. baseball brought us and the mlb app allowing you incredible access to any game, any time. nbc and its partners created hulu, the popular online television service. perhaps the only time a big media company didn't completely screw up its internet offerings. those two efforts, baseball and hulu, have one thing or one person in common. >> maybe ahead of its time. >> on the team at mlb and the first ceo of hulu. with two major wins behind him, the next effort is manila. an online service helping consumers pay bills, any bill, online instead of through the mail. george is a recovering attorney who has been working in digital media for years now and joined by us. so why do large organizations get it so wrong on the internet so often? >> well, i don't know why they get it wrong. >> because you got it right. that's why you don't know why they get it wrong. >> i think when you start with great content, i think it should be difficult to get it wrong. >> but they do. >> but they do sometimes. i think if you have great content and

, as well, the march on milwaukee civil history rights project. what can you tell us about that? >> so, the march on milwaukee several history rights project is a digital archive, it's an online archive of sources relating to mostly the struggle for open housing and school desegregation in 1960s milwaukee. it includes oral histories, but it also includes text documents, photographs and video footage, news footage from a local tv station at the time. >> what do you find the biggest challenge is? because your document, both of you are relatively recent history. we're talking in the case of the civil rights into the '60s -- '50s and '60s in the case of the japanese heritage project, the 1940s or so. what are the biggest challenges in terms of finding original source material? >> well, we had at my university, university of wisconsin, milwaukee, we had a lot of the documents already in our physical archives. so the challenge was to make them more accessible and to give them a kind of a context so that students in milwaukee in particular but beyond could learn more about their city and its
here to see us. and so, i think that once again, i go back to the fact that under the current system, because we have so many of those individuals who were once incarcerated at the state level, being pushed down to the counties, there's no room at the end in terms of the county jails. so misdemeanors aren't going to be sentenced to county jail but will be sentenced in community service or whatever. and for those individuals who do need some measure of control and supervision to deal about -- deal with their conviction problems, it's not going to happen at the misdemeanor level. >> let me go to a couple of the questions from the audience. i've shared them with our district attorney. george, two questions there, one related to whether or not drug possession should be treated differently for adults than from juveniles. and then a question about back on track, whether or not that program would be positively or adversely affected by senator leno's proposal. >> yes, let me start with the first question concerning juveniles. i think juveniles definitely need to be treated differently

[cheers and applause] and because they're located here, we can always ask them for a favor here and there and make sure no one is left out, because that is what we do in government. david chiu and i come from backgrounds where we do not want to leave anybody behind. we want everybody to enjoy the riches of technology. we want them to enjoy the economy in san francisco. that is why we're working so hard to make sure our central marketplace is welcoming of all these technology compan

's good to have you with us. several major decisions from the supreme court this week. five of the nine justices voted to uphold president obama's healthcare law, saying the law's individual mandate is legal. religious groups were divided over the legislation. some had called healthcare reform a "mol imperative" while others worried the law would allow federally funded abortions. faith communities had also lobbied hard around arizona's immigration law. on monday, the court struck down three parts of that legislation. but, it left in place the requirement that local police check the immigration status of people they believe could be in the country illegally. in another case, the justices ruled against mandatory sentences of life without parole for juveniles convicted of murder. they said courts should have discretion about imposing that punishment. for more on the religious reaction to these decisions, patricia zapor of catholic news service is here and so is kim lawton managing editor of this program. welcome to you both. >> thank you. >> pat, the health care decision, what do you hear?

on legislation in the next congress and >> joining us this week is representative henry waxman, democrat of california. thank you for being here. to question him and joined us are kate hunter from bloomberg and lisa from "the los angeles times." >> the supreme court obviously rule to uphold the core of president obama's health care law. when it passed in 2010, democrats marketed it not as a tax. the court press pretty clear that they considered it a tax. do you? >> the heart of the bill is that we require everybody to get health insurance. because that spreads the cost where services are needed for whatever number of people there are. the broad base of people were paying into the insurance pool. we had a mandate, but the court did not want to accept the idea of the mandate under the interstate commerce clause. they said that since the penalty for not getting health insurance is paying a tax, that was constitutional. that is fine. it is constitutional. under this law, we now have the affirmation that the law is constitutional. we have the assurances of 30 million americans that they will

to their ramadan feast the last couple of years. it has been a great asset to have officers helping us out. numbers are numbers. we are a small district, so we should have a quicker response time. but we do a lot of overlapping controls. these are 2011 numbers. and then close to 50,000 cuts last year, calls for service. we have a lot of miscellaneous calls in this area. it breaks down, they give us the numbers. some of the numbers, i was adding them up. my assistant, who helped with the powerpoint, will i pay quite extensively, my youngest daughter, she said the numbers do not add up, but they are close enough. it is roughly about the same as it was. part one crimes -- we broke it down for you. we had a big reduction last year. everything is kind of in flux on certain crimes. our robbery rate was down last year about 8%, but it is up about 4% this year, and it is probably because of electronic devices. in that with catholic couple of weeks ago -- i met with apple a couple of weeks ago about other problems they were having. otherwise, aggravated assault, we are down a little bit. we are about 2% vio

. we are finally seeing once again california's innovation is leading us out of the last three years of recession. i do not know about you but i am pretty tired of the recession. i made a statement several years ago that it was about time for an adjustment to the economy, things were too expensive, overheated. two years after that, i regretted making that comment. it was great to hear jim say when you look at education, you look at the programs, traveling around the world, that there is one constant. there are people and technology that say this is a place they want to be. entrepreneurs say this is where they want to be. when companies like facebook are started at an institution like harvard and a pier, you start to recognize why this is so special and fiber and why innovation is a bleeding heart economy. so let me try to give some brief introductions about our panel today. i have to confess, i only just met one of our panelists, lee said dyson, the ceo of coverity. she got a ph.d. in physics from mit but felt the urge to come out here to california and she did her research at stanfo

over the weekend. meteorologist alexander steel tracking the weather for us. this isn't short-lived. >> no, poppy. first of all the breadth and depth of it we are talking 45 million people being impacted by it. also the degree to which we are breaking records. these records aren't just the hottest for the day or the month. they are the hottest records, hottest temperatures these places have ever seen ever anytime of year since records began in the 1800s. dodge city, kansas, 111. nashville, tennessee, 109. there were 140 all time records broken. over 1,900 records one way or another. of course, the heat exacerbated by what you were talking. straight line winds knocked out power from the virginias to ohio. the nighttime temperatures drop to the 70s and 80s only that causes the most problems. heat the number one weather related killer in the u.s. because of the nighttime temperatures. today's high is already 104 in atlanta, georgia. these were today's highs. tomorrow we will shave off a few degrees but it is negligible because the nighttime temperatures will stay so high. 97 in a
years. is it something you said you know what this would be kind of fun for us to do, and for the rest of our lives. did you cook as well? no she does most of the cooking i'm the sous-chef. the sous-chef. i prepare for her and i clean up. that's it. he cleans up great. that's an important job. we met unusual, if i told you about how we met, it would take a whole other tv show. we met at my fraternity house and fell in love when we saw each other. manny and i have been married for 46 years, a long time, good times, bad times but our times. and we tried all kinds of things to keep our marriage going. keep it fun, exciting and different. were cooking chicken with edamame beans which are healthy. peppers, onions, and ginger and some spices, nothing too exotic. i don't cook with spices no one has ever heard of. did you mention chicken? i did. so it's a healthy dish. where did this come about, something in your family, something you came up with, or maybe two courses and combine them together? yes, yes, and yes. mostly i thought of it.

at the scenario scenario where he has inherited this weekend position of the united states. the u.s. is no longer the sole superpower. there is no longer a sole superpower. it's not even clear that the u.s. is the most important or most influential power in the region. it's now contending in a whole new way with a whole new lineup of emerging powers. in that context, we have the u.s. dispute i would say in iraq. we have the rise of iran and turkey that you describe in the book, contending with each other and with others for regional dominance and increasingly we have the arab spring that has emerged that has challenged that the u.s. could provide not only on israel but for these arab dictators for so long. what do you think would have been different with another president, either a neoconservative president like george bush, or someone else? did barack obama asa poses a fundamental question, have any options in what he has done? >> guest: well i think this is really raising many many problems. there is not just one particular point. we need to understand and the book is subtitled the beginning of
been up here on higala highland lane all day long. this is as close as they're allowing us to get to the crime scene. you can see a sheriff's deputy has positioned himself on the roadway. hes keeping people from going to the scene. investigators are searching evidence at a home we have been told is owned by 49er linebacker aldon smith. nbc bay area has learned that smith was stabbed during a party he was hosting at his house last night. two other people were hit by gunfire. sheriff's deputies say all three victims received non-life-threatening injuries and are expected to recover. the santa clara county sheriff's department tells us they got a 911 call just after 2:00 this morning. they arrived to an extremely chaotic and hectic scene. they say there was about 100 people there at the party, many of them trying to leave when investigators arrived. they quickly discovered that three people had been injured, but they say nobody at the party knew who was responsible, and so far they have no suspects. a neighbor described what he saw and heard. >> lots of shots about 2:00 in the mornin

? that may be things like gray matter lighten kent showed us that showed us that people like psychopaths have decreased gray matter in particular regions of their brain. it could be something like the guy who he was talking about out of virginia who had the large tumor in his brain and chose to act on but didn't have control over having the tumor in his brain. how do we take account for that in law? that's, i think, the interesting struggle that neuroscience presents us with, but it doesn't change the issue of free will. in fact, we have just as robust of evidence from neuroscience that supports this concept of action which is what we punish for in law to begin with. >> and, doctor, would you like to comment on that last? >> no. [laughter] >> i would like to raise an issue. theoretically, that may all be true. there is a problem in distinguishing and differentiating those who are compelled to act from, based on their desires and those who are not. and so if you can't define and it's not just simply defining in the brain, but it's defining it genetic, environmentally, contextually, you're defi
any other developed nation, the u.s. economy is driven by its citizens and on how confident they feel about their future. this week we learned that the measure of consumer confidence fell for the fourth month in a row to its lowest levels since january. you may disagree with why it's down. but, again, the customer who in this case is the american consumer is always right when it comes to the economy. why? because if americans are worried about the economy, they delay making important purchases and a perceived economic slowdown can easily become a reality. okay. so it's happening. but why? well, probably the biggest reason is this -- jobs. 20 straight months of job growth. yes. but over the last five months, look at that trend. roughly corresponding to the drop in consumer confidence, hiring in america has slowed. a week from now we'll have the job creation numbers for june to see where this trend is going. but until we have a strong jobs recovery, americans are going to hold back. and that is going to hamper a wider recovery. frankly, there is good and real reason to be nervous. it's
's headed to our shores. there's one brewing right here at home. i don't want to mix metaphors. the u.s. storm is actually a cliff, a fiscal cliff. that is the expiration of some tax cuts, some of which you'll know as the bush tax cuts, and some other benefits on midnight on december 31st if congress does nothing. i don't know about you, but i am pretty concerned about what this all adds up to. if you're not, that's good for america. you'll keep spending and if i'm wrong, then i'm wrong. i'll wear that. but i'm not running for office. my job is to arm you with the truth about what is happening in this economy. people's futures are at stake and now more than ever you need to be informed. joining me to discuss our best line of defense against this storm is stephen moore, editorial writer for "the wall street journal." diane swunk, mohammed alarian, ceo of pimco, the world's largest investor in bonds. romney-obama, romney-obama. who cares? it truly doesn't matter who is going to become the president of the united states. because if they win, the things that have to be done to fend off this
service and we're just another tool they use for their plan on how to fight this fire. they give us the call, then we're ready at a moment's notice. we're standing by ready to launch with witness cht it's like a nascar pit stop. we come in, get loaded. get fuel and take off. go rejoin with the lead formation pilot from the forest service and he has the plan and puts us on the target. >> you're saying that like a nascar pit stop. get them in, out, quickly. as we look at this video, especially the ariels, we're seeing a lot of smoke coming out of the area from the sky in colorado. does that impact your efforts at all? >> impacts the visibility, it can make our job extremely tough because it has to be done visually. if we can't acquire the spot, it makes it hard, sometimes, we have to go into an area expegting to drop in one spot. we came in on tuesday for a line they had picked out they wanted to reenforce and then the wind would bring visibility down. sometimes, it would take three, four attempts before we could get our loads in the direction we wanted. >> red flag conditions continu
for joining us. >> we have all lot of news to cover, a big week in sacramento where they pass the budget but coming up, high-speed rail. a big vote this week on the future of high-speed rail. >> he spent time in sacramento last week >> it was warm up there. i don't know where it was hotter, inside or outside the capital because it was not pretty to as they hammered that together and you were with ross mirkarimi at the hearing >> we will talk about the latest of the testimony. several new laws coming into effect as it is the beginning of july >> friends of a missing dodgers fan who may have fallen into the bay are reaching out to the public for help >> they're conducting another search along the embarcadero. victor and a friend left at&t park after the giants dodgers game monday night. they were walking near pier 30 and pier 32 when he vanished. the coast guard and fire department search turned up nothing. the official search was called off on tuesday. >> for friends and family has been really rough but we are trying to stay strong and pulled together in the out years to support his famil
. for us, it is a the best way to connect because they live very far away and we do not get to see the mother rise. it is an important way for all of us to be able to connect with our families and with our communities. for americans living with disabilities, many of whom are also aging americans, broadband and commuters -- computers can provide even more critical tools for health and wellness. they allow someone with a speech impairment to e-mail her doctor, a person who is mobility limited to its in glasses -- classes online, and for someone else to work at home. 29% of people with disabilities would join the work force if telecommuting were actually a viable option for them. before working at home, however, broadband is now a necessity for anyone searching for a job. many job openings are only posted online. about 80% of fortune 500 companies only accept job applications online. and about 60% of working americans use the internet as an integral part of their jobs every single day. if you do not have broadband, you are increasingly cut off from these opportunities. and unfortunate
shows distribution, most of us in here. you get anybody out here who is externalizing or anyone out here who is internalizing, as a psychologist, we try to bring them back in here so they're more healthy. that's what we study. when you're having problems in your life or any other area, if we can do something, talking to you versus talk therapy or medicine that might help you, what we're trying to do is get everybody back here so we're just kind of more balanced. with respect to the traumatic brain injuries and other types of things, that's much simpler for people to kind of understand that you had a concussive event or you had a t.b.i., traumatic brain injury, that's caused problems. we should be developing ways of helping to manage and treat those problems just like we do individuals who have the other types of problems. >> let me just add one thing there, which is it's a good question, but it highlights one of the challenges of introducing neuroscience today in the courtroom. at kent showed you some of his slides and mentioned during his talk, he is trying to develop treatments as he d
